64squar.es is a completely free, fully featured and easy to use online chess site with a clean simple interface.
Users can play opponents in real-time by dragging and dropping the pieces just like a real chess board. Ajax is used to make your moves on the opponent’s board and vice versa.
We are trying to blur the distinction between real-time online play and correspondence chess. If a user is not online when a move is made, they are sent an email.
- Customize board color
- In game chat
- Implementation of ELO Ranking
- Email Notification
64squar.es is built using Ruby on Rails and jQuery. It also uses Juggernaut (a ruby on rails plugin) to remove the need for polling to improve responsiveness and ease future scaling.
